Vulfpeck Reveals Eight New Songs And Two Familiar Ones For ‘The Beautiful Game’

first_imgCome October 17th, funky wonders Vulfpeck will release their newest full-length LP, The Beautiful Game. With the band just wrapping up a four-night run through New York from Wednesday – Saturday, fans have been dying to know what music will be featured on the new LP. Today, that changes, as the band has released both the full tracklisting and an excerpt of liner notes from the new album.The band did play one new song – titled “Cory Wong” – from the new album during their SummerStage performance, but have been tight-lipped about everything else thusfar. They also said, on Saturday night, that their performance of “Conscious Club” would be the last time it was played as an instrumental in America, leading us to believe that the version that appears in the new tracklisting has a fresh set of lyrics. This wouldn’t be the first time that Vulfpeck added lyrics to one of their older songs, as “Christmas In L.A.” made its debut as an instrumental on the 2014 album Fugue State before being lyricized for the 2015 album Thrill Of The Arts.In all, the new album has ten songs, eight of which are completely unfamiliar. It’s interesting that the band chose not to play any of them during their Brooklyn Bowl run, but the reward will come when listening to these new songs through fresh ears. The liner notes also indicate a number of featured guests on the album.Check out the tracklisting and liners below, courtesy of the Vulfpeck. You can also find more about the album on the band’s Kickstarter page.You can see the liner notes for the album below:last_img read more

Contraceptive pills cutting ovary cancer deaths: study

first_img Share Share HealthInternationalLifestylePrint Contraceptive pills cutting ovary cancer deaths: study by: Associated Free Press – September 6, 2016 Share Tweetcenter_img Sharing is caring! PARIS, France (AFP) — Deaths from ovarian cancer fell significantly in Western countries from 2002 to 2012 and should continue declining largely thanks to widespread contraceptive pill use, researchers said Tuesday.Deaths fell 16 percent in the United States, 10 percent in the 28 European Union nations excluding Cyprus, for which there was no data, and eight percent in Canada.In Japan, which has a lower ovarian cancer rate than many other countries, the death rate fell two per cent, said a study published in the Annals of Oncology. In Australia and New Zealand, deaths declined 12 per cent from 2002 to 2011 — the most recent year for which data was available.“The main reason for the favourable trends is the use of oral contraceptives,” the authors wrote.“The falls were greater in young and middle-aged women than in the elderly, and earlier and larger in the USA, the UK and northern Europe,” they said.“These are the countries where oral contraceptives (OCs) — which have a long-term protective effect on ovarian cancer risk — were introduced earlier and used more frequently.”A decline in hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to manage menopausal symptoms, as well as better cancer diagnosis and treatment, may also have played a role.HRT, which uses oestrogen or progestogen to ease menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, vaginal dryness and a low sex drive, is thought to increase the risk of ovarian cancer — by as much as 40 per cent according to a 2015 study.The pill, on the other hand, is generally accepted to protect against the disease, dubbed a “silent killer” as it is often spotted too late.Other research, though, has linked the contraceptive to an elevated risk of cancer of the breast, as well as heart attack and stroke.The latest study, which had no numbers on Africa, said the pattern of decrease was inconsistent between countries.Among European nations, the fall ranged from 0.6 per cent in Hungary to over 28 per cent in Estonia, with Bulgaria showing an increase.In Latin America, deaths decreased in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, but rose in Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico and Venezuela.Based on data from the World Health Organization, the team projected that ovary cancer deaths will decline by another 15 percent in the United States until 2020, and by 10 per cent in the EU and Japan. 218 Views   no discussionslast_img read more

GFG Style Kangaroo Lifted Electric Supercar Packs A Punch Video

first_img GFG Teases Kangaroo Electric Hyper-SUV Ahead Of Geneva GFG Style And Envision Presents Sibylla Concept Electric Car Check Out This New Kangaroo Electric Hyper SUV Four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, and three suspension modes.It was at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show where Italdesign Giugiaro introduced the interesting Parcour – a supercar powered by the Lamborghini Gallardo’s engine, but with the ground clearance you’d usually expect from a lifted wagon or a crossover. The coupe and roadster concepts were applauded for their unusual configuration, but ultimately never saw the light of day as production models.More from GFG Style Its sleek bodywork is made entirely out of carbon fiber to keep the weight in check, while the trick adjustable suspension has three selectable modes: Racing (ground clearance of 140 mm / 5.5 inches), Road (190 mm / 7.5 inches), and Off-Road (260 mm / 10.2 inches) for when the going gets tough. Those massive 22-inch alloy wheels might not seem off-roading material, but the ability to considerably raise the body enables the Kangaroo to tackle difficult terrain.The 90-kWh battery pack has enough juice for more than 280 miles (450 kilometers), although it’s unclear on which fuel consumption testing procedure. Power is provided by a pair of electric motors each developing 180 kW, so combined output stands at the equivalent of 483 horsepower (360 kW).What you see here is more than just a pretty face as the car has already evolved to a running prototype based on an electric platform developed in partnership with CH Auto. The “Hyper SUV” as described by its creators promises to do 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) in only 3.8 seconds and top out at an electronically governed 155 mph (250 kph).Aside from showcasing the running prototype, GFG Style will also have on display at the Geneva Motor Show a clay model with the roof and hood in exposed carbon. In addition, the Kangaroo is going to ditch the wheels and tires to make room for tracks as the people behind the car believe it would be a hoot to use on icy and snowy roads.center_img Why are we bringing this up? Because Giorgetto Giugiaro and his son Fabrizio are the founders of GFG Style and for this year’s Geneva show they have prepared something similar in philosophy. Attempting to combine the performance of a supercar with the utility of vehicles featuring a generous ground clearance, the Kangaroo is a futuristic jacked-up EV with all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering.
